Upon logging into an 8i database this error ocurrs:  

SQL*Plus: Release - Production on Tue Dec 2 07:36:13 2008 ERROR: ORA-04031: unable to allocate 4096 bytes of shared memory ("shared pool","BEGIN DBMS_OUTPUT.DISABLE; E...","PL/SQL MPCODE","BAMIMA: Bam Buffer")  

Why would this event fix the problem?
alter system set events='immediate trace name ksfqp_limit level 1'; Then add this entry to the init.ora
 event = 'logon trace name ksfqp_limit level 1' Can somebody explain this to me?

Suspicious message? There’s an alert for that.
